Police force 'could launch graduate jobs scheme'
Friday, 01 August 2008
The police service could be set to launch a fast-track scheme for graduates, it has been announced.
A green paper on policing suggests boosting the number of graduate jobs available in forces will help widen the pool of talent for senior posts, reports Personnel Today.
The document, From the Neighbourhood to the National: Policing out communities together, states that more needs to be done to encourage top talent to join forces across England and Wales.
"A new graduate fast-track scheme will be developed by the National Policing Improvement Agency to attract top-quality graduates from leading universities into policing, with the prospect of quick progression to senior ranks for those who merit it," the green paper states.
